Sleeping Dogs
 
From the ashes of True Crime: Hong Kong, comes Sleeping Dogs.

Square-Enix has announced Sleeping Dogs, a new "gritty, open-world cop drama" from developer United Front Games. Set in Hong Kong, it promises "intense shoot-outs, adrenaline-fuelled street races and intense, brutal martial arts combat". (So... pretty intense, then?)

The studio had been working on True Crime: Hong Kong for years before Activision canned it in 2011. Square-Enix picked up the pieces in August last year, and Square-Enix London has been supervising development since.

The announcement press release puts a lot of emphasis on the game's combat system, which promises martial-arts-inpsired hand-to-hand combat punctuated with cinematic finishers using environmental features like phone booths and refrigerator doors. The game casts you as an undercover cop, Wai Shen, investigating Hong Kong's criminal underworld.

It's out for PS3, 360 and PC in the second half of this year. You'll see more info on Sleeping Dogs as soon as we have it. The live-action announcement trailer is below.
Edit: If there was already a True Crime thread, then just merge or close this one.

Totally forgot about this, I remembered that Square-Enix picked it up after it was shelved by Activision but then I didn't pay much attention to it. It seems to be still the same True Crime: Hong Kong it was except by name. Nice live-action trailer but I'd rather see some gameplay.

yeah, usually when a game is close to completion like that, they don't change the game that much. If i remember correctly back when Red Dead Revolver still belonged to Capcom, it was still western themed, but it had supernatural elements earlier on, once they canned it and Rockstar picked it up, they made it what it is today.

The game itself looks pretty decent, dunno about you guys, but the fighting seems to be somewhat like Arkham Asylum, at least that's what I'm picking up. Definitely looks like one of those games that will hold you over until the next big release arrives
